A Charming Young Woman's Funeral

church funeral
some guy handing out

the cousin nobody knows —
my sixth pallbearer

no pockets –
tissue hidden
up grandma's sleeve

my prom date
explaining to his children
a friend from another time

somebody mentions
they'd be claustrophobic

bringing me
to the graveyard
a reservation in my name


The Same Person

how she takes her coffee
wondering if we know
the same person

giving his phone number
until there’s nothing left

the sun sparkles
along this stretch of road
hot springs

broken flower pot
who is that rapping
at our backdoor

everyone is hoping
for a rain delay

tips his hat —
the sun sets at 5:54

A rengay by Gena Henrich and Lucas Stensland, USA
